North Korea today fired two unidentified projectiles into the sea which is latest in a series of such launches by Pyongyang.

The South Korean military said the projectiles were fired from near the city of Tongchon of Kangwon Province into the East Sea, also known as the Sea of Japan.

South Korea 's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the military is monitoring the situation in case of additional launches while maintaining a readiness posture.

It was the sixth round of launches since last month, with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un labelling them a solemn warning over US-South Korean joint military drills that began earlier this month.

Earlier today, the North's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country in a statement said it rejected comments by South Korean President Moon Jae-in that outlined his desire for unification and said it had nothing else to discuss with South Korean authorities. (AIR NEWS)
